Hello there,
Thanks for coming on by..
Well another week has flown by, and I thought I would sit and scrap last night and get a page done no matter how long it took me!! hee he!!I thought I would do the sketch from ANNAS CRAFT CUPBOARD ON facebook which looks like...

Isn't that so pretty and lots of room for interpretation.. so my layout..

a couple of closer views..

lots of layers.. and a touch of stencilling peeking out!

and lots of fussy cutting... and a bit of glitter glue to add a bit of sparkle to the centre of the flowers..

Love life.

I love this older photo of my Daughter and I think the blue back ground was inspired by the color of her shirt.. I have used papers from Simple Stories Botanical which is new to my stash. The blue back ground paper is old though, an old Kaisercraft baby boy range..
Thanks Anna's Craft Cupboard for a great sketch this month..

Thanks so much for dropping by, and thanks for the lovely comments you leave me to read . I love each one..

Have a wonderful day..

Hello there,
How are you on this lovely day. The days are simply glorious here, and the mornings are beginning to get a bit crisp.. a bit harder to get out of bed!!
Last week Anna's Craft Cupboard had their Cyber Crop #13 and while I did not get all the challenges done, I did try and get a few done, and I would just like to share them on my blog.

Challenge #7 was a Tic Tac Toe.
And I chose the top row... Chipboard, Flowers and Border Punch..

My layout..

I have used some old Kaisercraft chipboard doileys and bird cage, two types of border punches and of course.. flowers..

Challenge #4 was a sketch..

and my layout..

The photos are of my Grand daughter with her ice cream birthday cake which we were hoping she would smash, but she was quite dainty about it and didnt smash it at all.. hehe.. maybe next year!!

Challenge #3 was to use negative space on your layout..

and my layout..

And again I have used a photo from my Grand daughters first birthday..

Challenge #6 was to create a card..

I chose to use pink and blue on my card..

The bracket shape paper was up cycled from an old envelope that had been send to me..

Well there were lots more challenges, but I didn't get the time to create them.  I am a slowish scrapper, something I am trying to get better at!! hehe..

Thanks for coming by, and thank you for your lovely comments.. I  hope your week is going well..
Until next time..

Lots of die cuts, layers and that flower is soo old, I think it is an old Manor House flower!!


She is such a cutie!!
Thanks White With One for another fabulous color to create with this month..

Hello there,
so nice you have come by, I am sure your days are busy and your weeks are flying by just like mine!!

I have managed to get a layout created inspired by the fabulous mood board challenge for

and I was so inspired by the doileys and I have also used the quote too on my layout..

some closer views...

I have used a few die cut doileys on my page.. and some fussy cutting..

I have used a Kaisercraft doiley stencil for some texture on the back ground..

Be brave..
I love this photo and I thought it suited the theme so well.. Thanks Anna's Craft Cupboard for a lovely challenge this month..

Thanks so much for your visit, I cant believe that half of April is gone already..  I hope you have a Blessed Easter whatever you are up to..  It may just be some time off  for you, but for me, it is the whole reason I believe in God and in His Son Jesus and the remembrance of the cross,  the penalty paid for my sin, that we all might come experience Gods saving grace..

until next time..

KRAFT+ - APRIL - Alice In Wonderland!

A pinch and a punch for the 1st of April... no kidding!!!!
March just flew by, so I hope we get a bit more time in April!!
The new challenge for KRAFT+ April is another interesting one to get your creative ideas flowing.. make sure you check out the Design Team inspiration over on the BLOG HERE!!!
and you can link up your entry over on the KRAFT+ Community page HERE!!!
and it is...
 Now you can be inspired by anything on this graphic which gives you a lot to go on!! And make sure it is on a base of Kraft...
I was inspired by the colors of the big picture and also that interesting painted back ground which I tried to copy on the background of my page...

some closer views..
This is what my back ground looked like before I started to embellish it with papers and flowers..

I must admit I may have gone a bit nuts with the flowers, but let me say I used up a lot of half empty packets on this page!!!

and lots of old flowers too..

And that is my little chubber at 5 months!! so cute..

I hope you get some creative time this month, I am finding I have to be very deliberate in making time to get away and create, other wise my days are taken up with all that other stuff we do during the days!!

Thanks for popping by, and thanks so much for the lovely people who leave me comments to read..
Until next time..

Hello there,
Thanks for coming by today.. I trust your week is off to a great start.. Cant believe we have one week of March left and then it will be April.. My days are busy, and I am sure you are probably keeping busy too!
I have challenged myself to get two challenges done each month, just to make myself make time for creating, otherwise I feel I would just be slack and not get any thing done.. so again I have joined in with C.S.I. - Color, Stories, Inspiration #276 which looks like..
I have used the colors and have also used from the evidence - dots, stripes, clouds, sun, ribbons/bows, string, buttons pinwheels and i have created a patchwork on my page too..

A closer view of the pinwheels which I made.

I made some flowers and put buttons in the centres of them also.

Hello Sunshine..
I love this drooly photo of my Grandie, those toothy pegs were giving her some trouble before they popped through!! Such old papers on this page too, but so glad to use them..

Thanks for your visit, and thanks for the comments you leave me too.. I hope you have a great week ahead... the forecast is for rain for us... I really hope so!!
